sa-cetana—conscious living beings; rahu dūre—leave aside; acetana—unconscious; sa-cetana—conscious; kare—make; tomāra—Your; adhara—lips; baḍa—very great; vājikara—magicians; tomāra—Your; veṇu—flute; śuṣka-in-dhana—dry wood; tāra—of that; janmāya—creates; indriya-mana—the senses and mind; tāre—the flute; āpanā—themselves; piyāya—cause to drink; nirantara—constantly.
“Aside from conscious living beings, even unconscious matter is sometimes made conscious by Your lips. Therefore, Your lips are great magicians. Paradoxically, although Your flute is nothing but dry wood, Your lips constantly make it drink their nectar. They create a mind and senses in the dry wooden flute and give it transcendental bliss.
